Item details

This listing is for the Agricultural Almanac for the year 1929 when in October the stock market crashed and the Black Tuesday initialized the era of the Great Depression that lasted the next decade.

One of the articles is called "Care of Money" and it talks about fearful people withdrawing their deposits from the failing banks and the article cautions them not to carry the cash as this "not only invites robbery, but murder" and continues that "These are not normal times."

This almanac is an interesting read for its historical context, but also holds an appeal and interest for the variety of topics covered. The short articles vary from family budget, the goodness of eating liver and soup short cuts to the cause and prevention of hollow potatoes in the crop, sweetening water in the cistern and finishing wood.

There is also an interesting article titled "An Age of Insects" in which a more environmental approach is presented for controlling insects by suggesting that more bird refuges and shelters would be important considerations as birds are natural controllers of the pests affecting the crops.

This almanac is in lovely, timeworn condition with plenty of patina, wear and signs of a long life.
Published by John Baer's Sons, Inc. in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Copyrighted 1928.

The exterior measurements of this softcover booklet are approximately 7 x 8 3/4 inches.

Thank you so much for your interest♥
